The Covid-19 pandemic has challenged many companies’ operational models, and will accelerate a global trend towards supply-chain resiliency and operational efficiency. Key to both will be a massive increase in gathering and analyzing operational data, and acting quickly and decisively on the insights gained. Successful operations in the coming years will, then, be more Connected, Automated, and increasingly Resilient in the face of disruptions. MIT and the MIT-connected startup community have been innovating in supply chains and operational efficiency for many years, and we have commercial, industry-ready solutions that will be key to this transformation. This workshop will present perspectives from industry leaders, academics, and corporate investors, while showcasing several MIT-connected startups in this field.

MIT Startup Exchange actively promotes collaboration and partnerships between MIT-connected startups and industry. Qualified startups are those founded and/or led by MIT faculty, staff, or alumni, or are based on MIT-licensed technology. Industry participants are principally members of MIT’s Industrial Liaison Program (ILP).
MIT Startup Exchange is a community of over 1,900 MIT-connected startups with roots across MIT departments, labs and centers; it hosts a robust schedule of startup workshops and showcases, and facilitates networking and introductions between startups and corporate executives.

Like all the 1,900+ startups in the MIT Startup Exchange platform, STEX25 companies are technology-based startups with a connection to MIT, whether they are based on licensed MIT technology or founded by MIT faculty, staff, or alumni. However, STEX25 startups have been identified as particularly well-suited for industry collaboration. These young, vibrant companies have proved themselves with early use cases, clients, demos, or partnerships, and may be on the cusp of significant growth.
